Question about Dymo LabelWriter 400 Turbo Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Dymo prints blotchy labels and feeds out many labels after print

Every time I try to print from my dymo lw400 the text comes out in blotches and pieces all scrunched up on the left side of the label. Then the printer feeds out 4 more blank labels that I then have to feed back through.
Is this a software problem or a hardware problem? My computer said that the drivers are all up to date.

Sounds like you have a couple of issues going on...your labels are incompatible or you have an incorrect template selected in the Dymo Software.

Check that the label model matches the template and you are using quality Dymo Labels. Such as the Dymo name brand or the LabelValue brand Dymo labels.

Dymo letratag blotchy print


Generally this is caused by something getting stuck on the print head. You can try a q-tip or a q-tip with pure rubbing alcohol on it and wipe of the print head.

Printer will not print and prints more than asked


Make sure you use genuine DYMO labels, not compatible ones. Also, make sure you select the right size in DYMO Label.

You may have to disable bidirectional support: right-click the printer > Printer Properties > Ports > uncheck the option.

I want to print a label with two lines of print on it. How do I do it?


To create a two-line label 1. Type the text for the first line and press INSERT. 2. Use the arrow keys to select Second Line and press . A multiline symbol is inserted at the end of the first line, but will not print on the label. 3. Type the text for the second line.
Here's the manual, see page 12 - http://www.dymo-label-printers.co.uk/downloads/LetraTAG-LT100H-Manual.pdf

When typing the print is faded


Dymo LetraTAGs are thermal printers, so they don't use ink - just batteries and LetraTAG tapes.
When the print starts to fade it's time to put new batteries in. When the batteries are running out the text fades first even when the motor is still feeding tape.

Multiple label feeding usually occurs because the sides of the spool holding the roll are not squeezed tightly together. Make sure there's no gap between the labels and the sides of the spool. If this doesn't help. take out the labels and blow a blast of air into the feed slot. There is a sensor inside the slot on the left that detects the hole in the labels, and maybe it is blocked.

The fix for this involves opening the unit up. The problem is the infra red LED sensor on the label exit has slightly miss-aligned giving the error. If you unscrew the two sensor boards, re-align and screw them back all will be well.

Hope this helps.

Only prints on bottom half of label.


Your scanner and thermal printer has got loose connection. Print head also may need cleaning by own system. try from the software.

Use a DYMO Label/Writer Cleaning Card #60622. One should have come with your printer. Just remove the labels, run this cleaning pad through a few times, insert the labels, and print.
